And a toller dlea In a day.
I am sick of the showy seeming
Of a lire that Is half a lie;
Of the faces lined with scheming,
In the throng that hurries by.
From the sleepless tbocghts endeavor,

For a dreamer lives forever.
And a toller dies In a day.
I feel no pride, bnt pity
For the burden the rich endure;
There Is nothing sweet In the city

And tho child mind choked with weeds,
Tho daughter's heart grown wilful.
And the father's heart that bleeds.

From trophies of mart and stage,

And the meadow's kindly page.

There are signs of the dawning of
a new era when a Democratic paper
like the Wellington Standard can say,
commenting upon the transformation
of the WalruS brewery buildings at
Lawrence, "a tannery and shoefaotory
may not make as much money as a
healthy brewery, but at the same time
tho new plant is worth ten times more
tothe community than the oldone was."
The old lie has got started again to

What has become of Eugene Ware
and his Arlington poem? We have
not heard of either since tbe former
went to Washington three weeks ago.
As for the poet, if your ears had been
open you would have heard the cheers
and laughter that rang from the ban
quet hall of the Loyal Legion at Kan
sas City the other night in response to
his wise and witty talk about "The
women of the War." And as for the
poem, wait for another volume of the
"Rhymes of Ironqulll," which Is to
appear soon, and you will find it in full.
The shortage of the late postmaster
at Lawrence is a little over $5,000.
Postmaster Shannon alleges that
Woodruff, the assistant postmaster,
got away with it, while Woodruff
charges that Shannon overdrew his
salary. Woodruff has been arrested,

will not be pushed very hard if some

Emporia Republican: Our atten
tion has been called to a clipping or
two from other papers in which we
are quoted as expressing the opinion
that Hon. E. II. Funston, of the Sec
ond congressional district in this State,
will be defeated for a re-election. We
wish to say that we have never ex
pressed such an opinion and know no
reason why Mr. Funston should be so
treated at the hands of a constituency
whose principles and interests he has
so faithfully represented in the past.
As a news item we stated that certain
papers weie making war on him, bat

that he ought to be defeated in the
next convention. If honest, able and

Thb latest Leavenworth Timet
rumor is to the effect that when Col.
D. R. Anthony resumes editorial con
trol of It on July l, he will begin a
fight on prohibition. We very much
question tbe reliability of this rumor.
Col. Anthony probably does not be
lieve in prohibition; but he believes la
being on top as much of the time
as possible, and he is certainly too
shrewd a man to deliberately take the
under side in this fight. For the antl
Bide is the under side in this State and
will always remain so. Prohibition
was voted down in Pennsylvania, It Is
true, and in Rhode Island. Bat Penn
sylvania and Rhode Island are not
legislating for Kansas, nor does Kan
sas have to lean on them for support.
She has stood alone In a good many
fights and she Is able to stand alone in
this one. Kansas is in the habit of
seeing to it that her reforms do not
progress backward, and the man who
faces to the rear in the hope that it may
be otherwise in this case, will find
himself getting only farther and far
ther behind the procession. We be
lieve Col. Anthony is too shrewd a
man to be "left" In this way.
Smith Frye, in his lost Sunday's
Washington letter to the Kansas City
Globe, has the following intciestlng
In the room of the Senate committee

since the 4th of March. This does not

keep stenographers going all the time
or else he could not have handled one-
tenth of bis mail. I don't believe that
any other public man has so manv
letters, daily to read and answer as
this Senator has. Yet he takes It all
as a matter of coarse and attends to
each letter as though it was the only
oue received by him. Sometimes he
gets three or four days behind with his
mall and the people have to wait for
their answers, but they get them. Mr.
Plumb never allows a letter to ao un
answered." Mr. Flenniken might
have added, but he didn't: "We are
both pretty well worn out."
A OOOD START.
Has anyone taken note that the
"young crowd" In Kansas are making
their way pretty close to the front in
the literary line? W. H. Carrnth, of
Lawrence, was Introduced before the
Suffrage Convention at Boston the
other day as "born and bred In Kan
sas, and a Professor in her State Uni
versity," and read a strong and stlrrlug
poem. The Register has published
a number of his verses and they are
rapidly winning their way into the
best magazines. Tom Morgan, of
Garnett, has earned a generous salary
for several years by writing short sto
ries for the Inter-Ocean and other
prominent papers. Mrs. Florence
Finch Kelley, of Miami county, and a
graduate of the University, has pub
lished a novel, "Frances, a story for
men and women," which is already
in its fourth edition. AV. H. Simpson,
of Manhattan, is a frequent contributor
of verses to the Chicago Tribune and
other papers. Miss Hattie Ilorner, of
El Dorado, has not sought an audience
outside of Kansas, so far as we have
noticed, but her frequent contributions
to the home papers are widely quoted
and it is understood that she will soon
publish a book of poem3. Glen Miller,
of Troy, (a nephew of -'Old Sol") and
a graduate of the University, is travel
ing through Europe and contributing
letters to a syndicate of newspapers.
Will White, of Lawrence, although
but a school boy, has already done
some of the brightest work the Law

Following upon the July chapters
of "The Life of Lincoln" which, as
already announced, deecribe tbe presi
dent's renominatiou and Mr. Greely's
self-suggested peace trip to Niagara
there will probably be only six more
Instpllmcnts of this remarkable history
in the Century series. It is said that
these concluding chapters deal with
the most important and absorbing per
sonal and political topics, to which
Messrs. Nicol.y and Hay bring a vast
fund of special information. Lincoln's
sagacity in dealing with men and
measures (and occasionally his humor)
come out in strong relief in the chap
ters that give the inside view of tbe
